Sabrina  Pit

Dr Sabrina Pit

Australia

Sabrina has a PhD in Health Behaviour (University of Newcastle), a Master of Science Degree in Household & Consumer Sciences (The Netherlands) and a Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety (RMIT University). Sabrina Pit has over 20 years experience in public health research to improve the quality of life of older people. She has experience in complex data analysis, large datasets, longitudinal data analysis, randomized controlled trials, and mixed methods. During her Ph.D. work, she conducted an NHMRC-funded cluster-randomized controlled trial which improved the use of medicines and reduced falls among older people through changing GPs behavior. In 2008, she was awarded a 4-year postdoctoral NHMRC part-time research training fellowship to continue her research in ageing well and productively by exploring pathways to healthy workforce participation. She is now the Workforce Research Stream Leader at the University Center for Rural Health, University of Sydney, Lismore. Currently, she is investigating how to prolong general practitioners and nurses working life in a healthy and happy manner. Among her research areas are work ability, productivity, sustainable employability, absenteeism, medicines use, healthy ageing, quality of life, rural health, preventative health, and health promotion. She believes in improving intergenerational communication through training. Her world vision is to create a 1000 happy and healthy workplaces to prolong working lives and learn from the wisdom of our elders to make our world a better place and encouraging others to do the same.
